New Year

Many fake plastic Sikhs celebrate the New Year and some shout "Happy New Year!" but why at this time?

The Gregorian calendar is internationally the most widely used civil calendar.

The New Year of the Gregorian calendar, today mostly in use, falls on 1st January (New Year's Day). It is named after Pope Gregory XIII, who introduced it in October 1582 AD.

The term 'Anno Domini' is Medieval Latin short for 'Anno Domini nostri Iesu (or Jesu) Christi' which means "in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Real Sikhs DO NOT celebrate the Christian New Year.

We got more important things to do than argue about New Years and not New Year, so for the sake of this point: Happy New Year! Or: Happy Not New Year! Also Jesus wasn't born anywhere relative to the winter, Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Prakash is closer to New Year and Christmas than Jesus's real birthday.

    • So many good points here. For one, we think of Sufis as the "good" and tolerant Muslims. But did you know that the main religious cheerleader for the martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev ji was a Sufi Muslim leader from Sirhind (a huge city of that time)? His name was Ahmed Sirhindi, and he was a prominent member of the  Naqshbandī Sufi order. Supposedly he was a big philosopher. Here's Brittanica on him: In refuting the Naqshbandīyah order’s extreme monistic position of waḥdat al-wujūd (the concept of divine existential unity of God and the world, and hence man), he instead advanced the notion of waḥdat ash-shuhūd (the concept of unity of vision). According to this doctrine, any experience of unity between God and the world he has created is purely subjective and occurs only in the mind of the believer; it has no objective counterpart in the real world.  So you'd think this guy was just living the life of the mind, right? No, he was a fanatic who encouraged the Mughal emperor employ policy of radical Islam (also known as simply "Islam") and to execute Guru Arjan Dev ji Maharaj. This fool's tomb is hardly a mile from the site of the execution of the 2 younger Sahibzade at Fatehgarh Sahib. It's huge complex called Rauza Sharif, and it's quite popular with Muslims. You can also see a few stupid Sikhs visiting the tomb of their 5th Guru's enemy. Note: I'm not saying all Sufis are murderers or encouragers of murder. I'm just saying keep your eyes wide open.
    • Hey, don't you know?  All religions are equal. Get with the program, bro! (sarc)
    • Thanks bro. Just one more thing: Where exactly was the stall situated (so we can prepare our response for upcoming Nagar Kirtans). Was it on somebody's front yard?  Was it on a sidewalk? Or was it in a stall allocated by the Nagar Kirtan organizers?   Also, were there a lot of Sikhs perusing the books or talking to them? Or were they being ignored by our peeps?
    • Well, as I mentioned above, it's unclear what the specific situation was where they were located (sidewalk, private lawn, etc.). We may or may not be able to legally stop them from setting up a stall. But, yeah, I agree the reason they target us is they perceive us as weak. Even if we can't boot them via the police, we can swarm their stall with knowledgeable Sikhs. We should be prepared with a contingent of Sikhs to do parchar to Sikhs, and then also contingents to debate with any non-Sikhs that show up. It's like an army attack. Army vs. army is a fair fight. Prepared Muslims vs the average unprepared Sikh is a slaughter. Anyway, the the knowledgeable Sikhs will debate the Muslims, while the average Sikhs can stand around and watch, and get enlightened instead of being bombarded with false factoids by the Muslims. If they get the message that that's what's going to happen to them every nagar kirtan, then at some point, they'll stop showing up to nagar kirtans. Another tack we can take is to make it clear to them that we have no problem with them following their own faith, but if they're going to try to convert Sikhs, then we'll return the favor with a stall every Friday at their mosque. I have a feeling they'll back off. Thoughts?
    • I saw with it my own eyes. It was a stall that said "love for all .. hatred for none"  .,they had books on the life of Mohammed and had 3 Muslim old uncle's with topis on.  I was in a car accident about 2 months and honestly stayed at the Nagar kietan for like 1 hour. It was the Delta mosque in tillsbury road. I really regret not approaching them, but he'll there was a brahmkumari stall as well on 128th. I
